A self-contained, underground treatment system for wastewater, usually the wastewater of a rural home. A septic system consists of a septic tank and a drainfield. A septic tank is a water-tight container that holds the wastewater and allows solids to settle. A drainfield is a system outside of the septic tank that treats the wastewater as it moves through the soil.
